Acceptance is the answer to *all* my problems Today. When I am disturbed, it is because I find some person, place, thing or situation—some fact of my life—unacceptable to ME, and I can find no serenity until I accept that person, place, thing or situation as being exactly the way it is supposed to be at this moment. Nothing, absolutely nothing happens in God's world by mistake…”
The “fellowship of . The program is a way of life which, if I practice it daily, will help me learn how to live sober. The fellowship is a group of people who share the common bond of alcoholism and strive to help each other learn how to live the program.

I used to spend a whole lot of my time pondering such questions. As I continue to grow in recovery I spend less and less time pondering and more and more time doing something about myself and my alcoholism. I can piss away my whole life indulging in ultimately meaningless analysis. This is not to say that all analysis is meaningless; I simply must be very careful not to be caught up in mental masturbation while forgetting to live my life.
It's really quite simple for me. I have a problem with alcohol (and a host of other things). the program offers me a way to overcome that problem which works. If I want to live, I must live that way of life. I've come to believe that I am an alcoholic, but what I call myself is indeed secondary to what I do about it. :001_tt2:
